  1. Get yourself down to the ground?

    Russia v Slovakia (14:00 BST)

    This game definitely isn't a sellout based on the fact the official Euro 2016 ticket website is selling tickets at a knockdown 25 euro (under £20)  for the most expensive two categories. 

    So if you're in Lille and have a few notes burning a hole in your pocket... don't go to the ground as I doubt they're selling them on the gate.

  2. Post update

    Russia v Slovakia (14:00 BST)

    Russia name the same starting XI that drew 1-1 with England.

    Russia: Akinfeev, Smolnikov, Schennikov, Ignashevich, V. Berezutski, Neustadter, Golovin, Kokorin, Shatov, Smolov, Dzyuba.  

  3. Roof news

    Russia v Slovakia (14:00 BST)

    The roof over the Stade Piere Mauroy will be closed this afternoon to keep out the rain. Should enhance the atmosphere somewhat.

    It was open for Germany's win over Ukraine last week.

  4. 'Petty' Ronaldo 'got beaten up'


    Former Iceland and Premier League defender Hermann Hreidarsson was known as a pretty straightforward player.

    He's a straightforward talker, too.

    Here's his assessment of Cristiano Ronaldo's comments on Iceland having a "small mentality".

    “It's petty in a way. He's a sore loser obviously. He thought he could have goals handed to him on a plate or he didn't have to work for it. If he would have worked as hard as every Icelandic player he wouldn't have had to say anything because I'm sure he would have got his rewards. He didn't fancy it on the day and he just got beaten up.”

  5. Get Involved


    After Cristiano Ronaldo's words on Iceland, what's the greatest example of footballing sour-grapery?  

    Barry Piccinni: Chris Sutton claiming Dunfermline lay down for Rangers to win the league in 2003 was some serious sour grapes.

    Benjamin Hillier: Tommy Docherty once blamed a 7-0 Scotland defeat on the Uruguayan anthem; It was so long it exhausted the Scottish players.

  6. Bale or Rooney? Bale AND Rooney?

    England v Wales (Thursday, 14:00 BST)


    Imagine you had the combined squads of Wales and England to select a starting XI from.

    Imagine no longer.

    We've created a funky tool that lets you pick a team from the pooled talent of both camps, before the teams meet in Group B tomorrow.

    Will you let national allegiance stand in the way of a well-balanced side? Of course you will.

    Have a go at it here.

  7. Early team news

    Russia v Solvakia (14:00 BST)

    Russia midfielder Denis Glushakov may start if deemed to be fully fit following a calf strain. He played the final 10 minutes against England.

    Back-up goalkeeper Yuri Lodygin missed training on Tuesday with an unspecified knock.

    Slovakia coach Jan Kozak will make changes following their lacklustre display against Wales.

    Ondrej Duda looks set to start after scoring against the Welsh shortly after coming on a substitute.

    Russia v Slovakia (14:00 BST)

    This way, fans on both sides of the pitch can read half of the wording each...

  9. Get Involved



    After Cristiano Ronaldo's words on Iceland, what's the greatest example of footballing sour-grapery?

    Stephen Shaw: Lack of humility? Easy, look no further than Ramsey and Bale. Reminds me of Scolari & Co in 2014, and look what happened there.

    Ross Bennett: Alan Stubbs saying Hibs won't give Rangers a guard of honour as they've shown "too much respect" already.

    Zanderzelle: Fergies "Typical German" grapes were pretty sour.

  10. Best of the bunch

    You want goals? Well baby you got em.

    Here's the best of the tournament so far.

  11. Play the Predictor


    Come on then. Who said Hungary would beat Austria? And who had Iceland down to nick a point against Portugal?

    You did? Liar, liar pantalons on fire!

    If you had played our Euro 2016 Predictor game you'd have digital proof of your foreseeing fortitude.

    If you didn't get involved in the first round of fixtures, why not jump on board now?

    You can still create a league with all your mates or join a league already setup by your buddies (imagine the joy of gazumping someone who started a week earlier than you).

  12. Post update

    Austria 0-2 Hungary

    Iceland's heroics meant Hungary's achievements earlier in the day went rather unheralded.

    Austria, who seemed to be the dark horse of anyone who had picked up a Euro 2016 tournament guide in the last two weeks, were undone by goals from Adam Szalai and Zoltan Stieber.

    Watch the highlights in the video above.

  13. Iceland and chill

    Portugal 1-1 Iceland

    So, let's have a brief look at yesterday's Euro 2016 action.

    Iceland, on their European Championship debut, put in a gargantuan performance to hold Portugal.

    Former Manchester United forward Nani opened the scoring for the Portuguese, before Birkir Bjarnason volleyed home the equaliser.

    Watch the highlights above.

  14. Day six action


    Three games on the agenda today, none of the namby-pamby two-game nonsense of yesterday.

    All times are BST. 

    Group B

    Russia v Slovakia 14:00 (live on BBC One and BBC Radio 5 live)

    Group A

    Romania v Switzerland 17:00 (live on BBC Radio 5 live)

    France v Albania 20:00 (live on BBC Radio 5 live)

  15. Get Involved - Best examples of sour grapes


    Cristiano's grapes were so sour last night, he'd struggle to cobble together a vintage from the Douro Valley (one for Iberian wine buffs there).

    But was this the greatest example of footballing sour-grapery?

    Tell us about your favourite moments when humility has escaped a footballer of manager.

  16. It's a small world after all


    Iceland may be small, but last night they proved they can create jubilant scenes of flag-waving euphoria like any of the big boys.

    The European minnows held Portugal to a 1-1 draw last night in Group F.

    Cristiano Ronaldo was brimming with humility afterwards: "This, in my opinion, shows a small mentality and they are not going to do anything in the competition."

    If that's a small mentality, I'll take being small every day of the week.

  17. Ding ding ding... Round two

    Get toweled down, stick in your gum shield and prepare to lift yourself off the stool.

    Round one of Euro 2016's group games is done and dusted. Seconds out! Here we go again.
